Abdelkader, unlike Helm, is expendable.
This team really seems to struggle when Helm isn't around.
I agree Helm is much more valuable that Abdelkader, but I think Abdelkaders age makes him the most attractive out of the "expendable" bunch.
Who was the last black guy to play in Detroit? Nathan Robinson?
I always pushed for Holland to get Mike Grier or Georges Laraque, but he never did.
I'd love to have Wayne Simmonds...
